An American travel vlogger, Sabbatical Tommy, has complained bitterly about his experience of visiting Nigeria for the first time. Wearing a facemask while filming the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, the man said that the corruption among officials is way too high.
He said that every rule at the airport can be bypassed if one has money to pay the right person.
Tommy added that even if you do not want to have your bags checked, an official can be paid for it. Tommy revealed that the country is not for the faint-hearted. He said: “The Lagos airport is that every definition of corruption that would pop out in the dictionary. Literally everywhere, literally everything here. Coming in, you don’t want to wait on line for your COVID test, pay this guy. You don’t wanna have your bags checked, pay this guy.
